  1. Post update

    OK, that's a wrap from us too then.

    For coverage of the first of today's three Premier League derby games, Chelsea v Fulham, you can head over here.

    Arsenal v Tottenham (14:05 GMT) and Liverpool v Everton (16:15 GMT) to follow...

    Until the next time!

  2. Get Involved


    Anthony Rayment: Another bonus for England is the rivalry between the other teams in their group. They can all beat each other, which helps England should they somehow drop some points.

  3. Post update

    France boss Didier Deschamps is asked: Who's the strongest opponent in your group?

    "Iceland, they're a solid team who are difficult to play, and then we have long trips to Albania and Turkey. But any qualifying campaign will always be difficult."

  4. Post update

    If one of those 16 teams already in the play-offs wins an automatic spot for Euro 2020, their play-off place will of course have to go to somebody else.

    It will be taken up by the next best-ranked team in their Nations League tier.

    So for example: if England qualify, their play-off spot could end up with Iceland - assuming they have failed to also qualify.

    Also, the play-offs should be played among teams of the same Nations League tier.

    Effectively this means that there will be a place for a team from each tier of the Nations League:

    From the bottom tier, one of Georgia, Macedonia, Kosovo and Belarus will definitely be at the finals.

  5. Post update

    Who makes the play-offs is based on performance in the Nations League, rather than in actual Euro 2020 qualifying.

    As it stands, 16 teams have already won a place in the play-off stage.

    They are the winners of each Nations League group:

    Switzerland, Portugal, Netherlands, England, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ukraine, Denmark, Sweden, Scotland, Norway, Serbia, Finland, Georgia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Belarus.

    But if they go through automatically?...

  6. Post update

    A quick reminder on how to qualify:

    The top two from each group go through automatically. That takes up 20 of the 24 spots for the Euro 2020 finals.

    The other four places will be won through the play-offs...

  7. Post update

    Belgium boss Roberto Martinez is "neither happy nor unhappy" with the draw.

    On Russia he says: "A team with a lot of confidence capable of beating top nations."

    On Scotland: "It's always a great game at international level."

    Greg Morter: England should be pleased with their group. Be disappointed if they don't finish on top.

  9. Post update

    Italy boss Roberto Mancini's being asked for his reaction to the draw - he, like everyone seems pretty chuffed to have avoided Germany.

    Any chance they won't qualify? It's in Northern Ireland's hands potentially.

  10. Get Involved


    elliot gilmore: If England do not qualify from that group we should give the game up.

    BWFC_Flakt: England should walk this group.

    Paul Thame: Am I the only person who misses seeing Infantino on these draws?

  11. Post update

    Hard to see England not winning that group. Northern Ireland seem to have got a pretty nasty draw.

    Republic of Ireland - Switzerland and Denmark will be tough games.

    Wales - second behind Croatia?

    Scotland - well they already have a play-off, but can they edge out Belgium or Russia for an automatic spot?

  12. The groups

    So here's a recap:

    Group A: England, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Kosovo

    Group B: Portugal, Ukraine, Serbia, Lithuania, Luxembourg

    Group D: Switzerland, Denmark, Republic of Ireland, Georgia, Gibraltar

  18. Decent draw for Wales

    Dafydd Pritchard

    BBC Sport Wales in Dublin

    Wales can be reasonably pleased with that draw.

    World Cup runners-up Croatia will be clear favourites to win Group E but Wales should be confident of beating Slovakia, Hungary and Azerbaijan.

    There are some great trips in there too. Judging by the initial reaction on social media, Wales' fans are happy.

  19. Group J

    Italy Bosnia-Herzegovina Finland Greece Armenia

    On to the final pot - pot six.

  20. Group I

    Belgium, Russia Scotland Cyprus Kazakhstan
